In 2003 Bush signed into law the ban on partial birth abortion. The liberals have not pushed back - why? Because even libertarians and independents understand that sticking a knife in the skull of a baby almost out of the womb is murder. The GOP should say they will fight against any efforts to repeal the ban and make democratic candidates declare their stand just like the dems forced GOP candidates declare their stance on abortion after rape. (As far as rape goes the GOP should say they are believe that all rapists should go to jail w/o parole). Finally the GOP should state clearly they oppose all public funding of abortion.
